Valencia owner Peter Lim is reportedly determined to bring in at least £30 million for Goncalo Guedes this summer, with the striker still an option for Wolves.
According to Get Spanish Football News, Lim is open to offloading the 25-year-old but is keen to secure a significant fee for a player who cost £34 million to sign from Paris Saint-Germain.
It was reported recently that the Spanish club are needing to make player sales in order to balance the books, as currently they are running the risk of violating FFP.
It has been suggested that a Guedes sales would be a means of easing the situation, as well as offloading Jose Gaya or Carlos Soler.
Jorge Mendes has been entrusted with finding a buyer for Guedes.
AS Roma are keen, and have tabled a £17 million bid for the player, which is way short of Lim’s valuation.
It’s stated the Italian club don’t want to exceed £21 million, and are open to offering players such as Amadou Diawara, Carles Pérez or Gonzalo Villar.
Earlier this year, the Telegraph claimed Wolves were going to prioritise a striker this summer and that Guedes was in their crosshairs.
Get Spanish Football News say in their report that Wanderers are still considering him as an option. But nothing is advanced.
Whether Wolves would be able to meet Lim’s £30 million asking price remains to be seen.
There have been suggestions that Wolves need to make player sales, with Ruben Neves the club’s biggest asset.
But it was also been claimed that money is there for the right player (upgrade on current options, young with high potential resale value).
£30 million for Goncalo Guedes could put Wolves off
Lim wanting £30 million for Guedes this summer could potentially put Wolves off the player.
It is a lot of money to pay, for a player who is not technically an out-and-out striker.
He did have a fantastic season in 2021/22, scoring 13 goals and making six assists. He’d likely make for a very good addition for Wanderers.
But it is a steep asking price, from a club desperately needing to bring in money at the moment.
